Editorial review from Citysearch 6/21/2012

The owner is a poacher of business with a big ego. He used to spy out our functions at a bank in Chicago and then bid on the parties afterward to show the customer the savings he could provide. The food is marginal at best from recipes he grabs from cooking mags, no originality. It is very easy to show savings with a less than quality product and service. the name of the company says it all, ""low priced special"". more

Going out of business 9/14/2007

I do not hear good things, think maybe they could go out of business. I think they lost their chef about a year ago and have no one..... :-( more

Avoid Blue Plate at all costs... 7/10/2007

I approached Blue Plate with a very simple menu. My wife and I decided on a ""Ravina-Style Picnic"" theme for our wedding reception and I communicated this to my representative at Blue Plate. I hesitated to mention the event was a wedding reception as I know, from being in the industry, that most businesses use the wedding reception as a chance to increase their profits. Pros: They talk a good talk. Cons: No follow through, attention to detail or care to fix a bad situation more

Huge variety of service, everything is customized to your needs. Wow! 2/20/2007

In my experience of Blue Plate, your event will be exactly what you make it. If you want a lavish affair with amazing decor and ambiance and a creative, trendy menu - Blue Plate will create that event for you. I have experienced their service most often at weddings, but if you need delivery/drop off boxed lunches, they'll do that. Talk about some creative menu items, my favorites are their passed hors d' oeuvres, some of which are listed on their sample wedding menu on their website. I love their crab cakes, and their ""fire crackers"", which seem to be shrimp and sticky rice with an asian sauce wrapped in colorful rice paper. Those are addictive! Pros: Variety of service (weddings, events, meeting planning, direct catering), great culinary team, lots of experience Cons: They can be above my budget at times more

Blue Plate going downhill 1/29/2007

I've been in the Chicago hospitality industry for several years and have worked with a broad spectrum of caterers from high-end private parties to posh galas. I started out as a big fan, however I think they've expanded too much too soon and have forgottten the basic principles of excellent food and good client service. They have been sorely lacking in following up on leads, have repeatedly made mistakes on menus, have delivered cold and overdone food, etc. What is happening there?! more
